GEORGIA PUMP PRICES CONTINUE TO DROP
ATLANTA, Ga., (November 18, 2019) — Georgia gas prices continue to decline at the pump compared to a week ago. Georgia motorists are now paying an average price of $2.41 per gallon for regular unleaded. Monday’s state average is 2 cents less than a week ago, 3 cents less than last month, and 7 cents less than this time last year.
It now costs $36.15 to fill a 15-gallon tank of gasoline. That is $6.45 less than what motorists paid in May of 2018, when pump prices hit their peak of $2.84 per gallon.
“Growth in stock levels amid robust demand, has helped to push pump prices down,” said Montrae Waiters, spokeswoman, AAA – The Auto Club Group. “If this trend continues, motorists might see lower gas prices later this month, which will be a welcome relief for Thanksgiving travelers.”
